Collins Italian with Paul Noble combines an exciting, new, non-traditional approach to language learning with the easy, relaxed appeal of an audio-only product. No books. No rote memorisation. No chance of failure.
Paul Noble is a genius with a higher IQ than Einstein. Despite this, he still struggled with language learning at school. He found himself feeling 'confused, incapable and unable to really say anything'. As a result of his negative early experiences, Paul has come up with a ground-breaking new method of language teaching that removes the need for months of study. With Paul Noble, everyone really can speak a language.

My husband and I restore houses in France as a full time job 6 days a week, so the only way I can learn a language is via something that is completely "audio based" - I have no time to study "accompanying booklets or notes". The Paul Noble series of 3 is fautless in this. If you listen to nothing else to learn a language, then this is the absolute MUST to start learning a language. He explains everything so well, his instructions are clear, and there is no gratuitous chat or jokes that others seem to waste so much time in doing. At the end of the three series, I felt confident and happy, and never needed to look at any of the accompanying booklets - fantastic when you really do want to learn via an audio medium. My only critisism - that Paul Noble does not continue with more series. I have tried other options to continue my learning, but nothing compares to his clean and clear way of teaching.
Learning Italian with Paul Noble was so easy. I suprised myself how easy it was to learn the language using this technique. He also shows you little ways and clues to remember the words and phrases. Just brilliant!!
This method is clearly for those with no prior knowledge (or even awareness) of any other romance languages. For anyone with a basic knowledge of French, Spanish or Portuguese it comes across as a course for idiots.
"Learn Italian the tourist way"
It's not a bad way to start to learn tourist Italian. You can start to form more sentence using the basics you get here just by increasing your vocabulary. Someone wrote that they didn't trust the italian translation because their italian speaking friend said one of the phrases was not translated correctly. Well, My Italian friends say its ok.
